Hi, I’m Marike! I’m a Preconception and Pregnancy Dietitian and have a big-heart passion for helping women prepare for pregnancy and grow a healthy brainy baby! Nutrition during the three months leading up to conception and throughout your pregnancy can set your baby up for a lifetime of success. This includes better health, higher IQ, and reduced chronic disease later in life. Not to mention, better nutrition during this time can also help YOU, the beautiful Mama, to have the energy and support you need to enjoy the process, prevent common nutrient deficiencies, and reduce unwanted pregnancy complications. You and your baby are so worth it, and it’s my greatest privilege to support you on this most exciting, crazy, and life-changing journey!
